Re: Malaga car hire.

Hmmmm, I would imagine the queue for goldcar/interrent would get quite long in busy times. Our pick up was a quiet afternoon on March 20th and we took a numbered ticket and waited our turn, about 20 minutes for us, but as i say it was a very quiet day.

Re: Moving to Velez Malaga

Very interested by this discussion. Are there any tours of VM? Preferably in Spanish and English as we have guests coming over soon and they would like this town.

Re: madrid malaga train

Oops, just looked at credit card. Not £92 each for first class - it was £92 TOTAL!

Yep £47 each. For a 330 mile train journey, First Class, with meal and drinks.

Re: madrid malaga train

Bought 1st class at £92 each. Most trains take about 2h 40m but this one takes 3h 05m. Maybe it stops on the way more often?

madrid malaga train

Thinking of doing this rail trip in may. I notice that 1st class is only about £13 more expensive, one way, than 2nd. Is it worth it?

Re: Change Vodafone tariff

Ok I solved it by doing it through the phone dialling *123#. Another question. I have successfully downloaded from the App Store the mi vodafone app. When I try to do this on my wife’s iPad I get the message saying it’s not available in your country or region!

Change Vodafone tariff

When I log in to mi vodafone I can’t see anywhere where I can change my tariff. When I visit the site without logging in I can see all the tariffs available. Any idea how I change my tariff. PAYG.

Re: Santander 123 account

Oh, ok. Not for us as we're only out 5 months of the year and we'd never have that usage. In the Uk it just demands a couple of diect debits and a monthly deposit.

Santander 123 account

I see from publicity that the spanish santander 123 account still pays 3% interest. Does anyone know if that is available for a non resident bank account and does anyone have any experience of opening such an account at the branch on Plaza Espana in Nerja? IE can they speak English and what document...

Re: Killing weeds with aguafuerte

Some towns in Span have banned glyphosate herbicides, of which roundup is one. And best to stock up becuase the EU/UK may well go the same way, after a rather nasty cancer case in the USA last year.

And of course it's now two tanks - the usual one and then another for the grey water. Makes for a lovely installation.

Over sized cheques

Hi

Want to give a presentation cheque as a prize. I know in the uk banks will issue a special large size cheque.

Do you know if I can do this in Spain. Or any alternative ideas that would give a photographic opportunity.
